Mr. Kischuk was above all my favourite teacher through my education especially Elementary/Junior high School. I fact I still have a picture taken at Crestwood school with his class outside one of the Portables where he taught us how to Curl using ice filled TIN cans as "rocks". Years, Later in life, when I started up MY career with Edmonton Public Schools in Admin. I met up with Joe just as he was thinking of retiring. I will always have this and other memories of this wonderful man. JACK Joe R.I.P.

Dear Joyce. Our family are greatly saddened learning of Joes passing. We had some great times together from 1953 to 1967 when we went to Whitehorse and then transferred to Vancouver. Joe was the best story and joke teller that we have ever known.
Our most sincere sympathies to you and to your children and grandchildren. I have enclosed a picture of us taken in 2005 when we last saw you two. Love to you and family. Ron Tainton, Debra Nakaska & Gordon Tainton

We are so sad to hear of Joe's passing, out thoughts and prayers go out to the family.
Many memories of spending time at the lake together, learning how to fish, with the fish hooks landing where they were not meant to be.
Big Hugs to the family.

Hello Mike...I am very sorry to hear of your father's passing. This is not easy at the best of times and with limited opportunity for family and friends to gather, it becomes more challenging. I wish the best to you and your family.
